POC has released its latest downhill and enduro-oriented full-face helmet, the Coron Air Carbon Spin. This carbon version joins the Coron Air full-face helmet that was introduced in 2015 and the Coron Air Spin from 2017.
POC suggests its new helmet combines lightweight and ventilation to meet the needs of modern gravity athletes who ride all day long, up and down the trails.

Light and safe
According to POC, its new helmet weighs in at 1,070 grams yet retains all of the company’s top safety features.
POC’s SPIN pads are standard with POC claiming the objective is to minimize the effects of an oblique impact by allowing the helmet to move relative to the head.
Additionally, the Coron is built around an EPP multi-impact liner said to ensure a high level of protection against a multitude of impacts.
The cheek pads are removable to avoid having to yank the helmet off in case of an emergency.

For clean integration and to avoid looking like a kook, POC’s Ora goggles were designed to provide a seamless fit with the helmet.

BikeRadar’s take on the Coron Air Carbon Spin
This helmet looks ideal for enduro riding and racing. With huge days in remote mountains, lightweight full-face helmets loaded with protection are more relevant than ever.
Lifting the lid on the helmet debate
It’s also a natural progression that follows current full-suspension bike technology of hugely capable machines that are still able to be pedaled deep into the woods and on all-day, hard-charging adventures.
POC claims the helmet is well-vented, but solely upon visual inspection, looks to lacking some vents compared to Fox’s Proframe or some of the removable chinguard type of helmets. Bell, Giro and MET have DH-certified convertible full face helmets but realistically you’re not going to see elite downhiller riders wearing those.
